Rode the bald hills area today, There was an easy skin track up (although full of post holes by a couple who walked up today). Snow was wind affected up high. We did get a slab to send out a pretty good shooting crack in a particularly wind affected area. We skied down Skier's right of the main hill. There was thin spots but none of us hit any rocks today. Was overcast all day and started to snow as we were leaving. There seemed to be more wind affect than we were expecting based on previous reports and weather forecasts. Overall a good day out for November

Snow conditions were: Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cloudy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Convex slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday.
